Emerson Faces Toughest Test yet

Jeff Emerson, Vice President at MMC, faced his toughest construction challenge yet Monday morning from a room full of inquisitive 3 year olds. Doing his best Bob the Builder impression, Jeff successfully recruited Montgomery Martin's next generation by inspiring the imaginations of a class full of "Little Lukers" at Grace St. Luke's Episcopal School. What a fun way to test out a hard hat!

Christ Community's Raleigh Clinic Opens

Christ Community is one of the largest Christian-based health centers in the nation and the largest primary healthcare provider in Shelby County, Tennessee. Their health centers serve over 57,000 patients with over 162,000 patient visits annually. In 2015, The Department of Health and Human Services awarded a “new access point” grant to Christ Community to open an 18-exam room primary care facility that includes oral health.

Montgomery Martin Contractors was fortunate to receive the opportunity to renovate approximately 21,000 square feet in an existing tenant space within a strip shopping center to construct the new medical clinic. The project also included the addition of a new, exterior metal canopy.

I cannot adequately convey how pleased we are with Montgomery Martin’s work to complete the construction of Christ Community’s Raleigh Health Center on-time and on-budget. We appreciate the personal interest you, Tom OBryan and others at Montgomery Martin took in our project. Your decision to assign Jeremy Doddridge as our job site superintendent was a great fit!
— Burt Waller, Former CEO

On Tuesday, February 9th, Christ Community Health Services officially opened the clinic's doors with a ribbon cutting featuring County Mayor, Mark Luttrell, and Representative, Steve Cohen.

The first U.S. Patent - on record - for a fire hydrant, Patent 909, was issued to John Jorden on September 8, 1838. We doubt he ever imagined his invention looking like this. In fact, neither did we, but that is what the Montgomery Martin Contractors team discovered just outside of the Federal Land Bank Building  Multi-family and Loft redevelopment, currently under construction in Columbia, South Carolina.
